What types of Penile Implant is right for me?
There are three general different designs when it comes to these implants. The implants are made in a malleable form, two-piece and three-piece inflatable prosthesis. Based on manual dexterity, medical co-morbidities and previous surgeries, Dr Karpman will help select the penile prosthesis that is right for you.
|The malleable prosthesis is ideal for patients with problems with manual dexterity or significant previous abdominal surgery.|
|The 2-piece prosthesis is for patients with significant previous abdominal surgery but who desire a more natural feeling prosthesis than a malleable can offer.|
|The 3-piece prosthesis is ideal for patients who desire a natural feeling erection. The 3-piece penile prosthesis is completely flaccid when deflated and more rigid when erect than a 2-piece prosthesis.|
